Subject: Tech: Slowing down tunes on CDs
From: SallyM

I'm not much of a techie I'm afraid, but I understand there is a downloadable programme available that will slow down CDs yet still retain the original pitch. I'm finding it a little difficult trying to learn fast fiddle tunes from CDs and something like this would make things much easier for a simpleton like me. Does anyone have any info on this please ?

Ya... get a ripper and make the CD file into an MP3... then use WINamps downloadable "Slower-Downer" to slow the MP3...

Figuring out how to do this on your own from here will be good for ya!

there is a cd recorder from marantz that has that feature built in for play back. it also will play back at a different pitch--lower or higher by an octave and keep the same time. the slow/fast play back mode does not change the pitch just the speed. these machines cost a pretty penny
but have interesting features. http://www.marantz.com/

By far the best and easiest way to do this is a piece of software called The Amazing Slowdowner, which you can find here.
The free version lets you work on the first couple of tracks of a CD, so you find out how easy and useful it is to use. To upgrade to the full version, you pay them about £20 (memory fails me, but it's not much), and they send you a password.
It lets you slow down whole tracks or bits of tracks, or just a little riff, and you can slow it exactly how much you need to. You can also change the pitch if its not in tune with your instrument. I'd have given my right arm (that can't be right) for one of these when I was learning the banjo.

I presume you work for nothing? - I thought Mudcat was here to promote music NOT theft?

There are freebie utilities for doing this, so nobody gets ripped off. I don't have time right now to search for one, but if you do ...

BTW, the sound quality is usually awful, but good enough to play along with.

On my new computer I have the Sound Blaster Audigy II sound card. This provides the capability of slowing down or speeding up CDs and maintaining the same pitch. You can also apply effects such as reverb, etc.

(As a software author, I have to agree with clansfolk.)

I have seen another one called Slow Speed CD. The demo seems to work OK, but I haven't checked the output quality on a good system.

Goldwave lets you do this, among many other things.
